Father of one of our children in foster care does not have a sim card for his phone. He works two jobs but does not make much money and asked for a Walmart Gift Card to purchase a $50 Smart Phone sim card so he can get his cell phone to work. He needs to be able to contact his lawyer, daughter and caseworker. He says that he has already paid ahead on the phone, so service would not be an issue.

This 14 year old boy has been in care for over two years. He bounced around a little, before finding stable placement with his siblings in March of 2021. He has an 8th grade field trip to Washington, DC coming up in April (with payment due by the end of the month). This youth is a great kid. Once he got into a stable and loving home, and was able to find the right dosage of medication, he has thrived. He does well in school, loves playing sports, and he has a very humble and kind personality. He would really like to go on this trip, and his foster family would really like for him to be able to join his classmates. They need some help to make this happen. The cost of the trip is $1,609, and that is a lot for the family to take on, especially since they have six other children in the home. So far, $500 has been donated toward this trip, and $1,109 remains. Any amount helps!

We would like to request assistance with a deserving family that we support. The family has a nine-year-old boy who struggles with ADHD and ODD who recently started taking medications that have caused him significant sudden weight gain. This family is poverty stricken, due to client’s mental health needs mom is unable to work as he is often asked to leave school. This family is working very hard to ensure that their son has the support he needs to be successful. Unfortunately due to some of his behavior client does struggle with negative peer interactions that lead to bullying and with his weight gain this has increased. For this reason the family is hoping to find a donor that will purchase client new clothing to help increase his confidence.

The two oldest children in the home are wrestling. Since moving to this home, the family was trying to find a way to help them meet people and feel welcome and also feel like they are doing well. Wresting has done this for them, this is the most successful placement they have had to date. They are also looking to adopt the children, so that is a very positive outcome for them. They are taking first place in their meets and are really excelling, so they are able to continue on to higher competition. The family needs help to pay fees in order to make this happen for them. It is 200 per child, so 400 total and the family can't afford that on top of the other children in the home and their fees, but wants to make this happen for them.

This father is a hard working parent , who has been given custody of his young child for safety reasons. The child is thriving and healing , the father has a full time job, and a vehicle that is no longer drivable ,the vehicle has engine or transmission problems that would cost more to repair than to just get another car. The father uses the vehicle to take his child to therapy , school and also to get to his employment site. We are hoping to raise 3,500.00 dollars so he can buy a working vehicle. Thank you so much. Updated on January 23, 2023 by an Agency Worker
We would also like to add that if someone has a dependable car they would like to donate to this family, please let us know. Your donation will greatly improve this family's situation, relieve a great deal of stress on this single father, and put dad and child on the road to success. Thank you for your consideration and all you do to make a difference in the lives of families!

High Urgency Request
Hello! I have two siblings who were placed in foster care last year in April due to parents' substance use and mental health concerns. The kids were placed with a family friend and they have been AMAZING in helping to take care of him and his sister while they are in foster care. One thing that the family has been struggling with was being able to afford to pay the kids' activity fees to make sure that they still are able to live like regular children and participate in their regular activities while the kids are in their care. The younger brother has been participating in soccer and is SO talented at it, and his older sister participates in theatre and theater camps. Anything would be so appreciated in helping this family out!

Three siblings have been significantly acting out after visits with parents and there are concerns for them hurting one another. With a 2-level home, foster parents are unable to see the children when they are in their room and need a baby monitor with video capability to ensure the children's safety while they are cooking dinner or are in other areas of the home. This need is urgent as the children have become very physically aggressive with one another and others in the household as well.

We would like to submit a request to assist a needy family with paying lot rent (600.00) and electric bill (317.00). This is a single parent family with mom and two young boys ages 7 and 9. Mom is unable to work due to a diagnosed seizure disorder that also leaves her unable to drive. We are in process of applying for Social Security Disability for mom and her two boys who struggle with developmental delays as well as PTSD and ADHD. We are assisting mom with mental health support at BNC as well due to a history of childhood trauma. This family escaped a domestic violent situation in Texas to return to Kansas where there are some family members located for natural supports, unfortunately family is poverty stricken and unable to assist them financially. Any assistance would be beneficial to this very deserving family. You’re blessing many lives.

We are currently working with an 8 year old child who is diagnosed with several mental health concerns. She has hallucinations and struggles with feeling safe in any environment. The family is very caring and working with her to help her in every possible way. She also has mental health services and treatment. While working with the family, we were able to identify 3 tools they could use to help the child feel safer. Both parents are working but with normal expenses and extra expenses for the child, they are living paycheck to paycheck. I am asking for help to purchase these needed items. I've listed the items that can be purchased through Amazon by any donor or I will happily order these with any donations received. Thank you for considering this request and for all of your support for our families and workers!! Child needs a light switch for the hallway in her home. She is afraid of the dark and being alone. The family rents and cannot make any renovations so we found a light switch that links to the actual light and doesn't require wiring: ($19.99 and tax). Child needs a dimmable night light for her bedroom and bathroom so that she can control the amount of light in her room but have a reliable light during the night: ($17.99 and tax) Child needs a camera in her room to record her activity at night for her therapist and psychiatrist: ($29.99 and tax)
